A Moment of Silence

Saddened by the death of Earl Scruggs. The world has become a bit less musical today.

Seems Unnecessary

All foods are better on a stick, but I wonder why they thought they needed to make a holiday to celebrate it

SANS2012 -- Orlando Hot Air Balloons

Every morning (just after sunrise) during the conference, I was able to look out my hotel room window and see hot air balloons peacefully floating in the sky. Looked like a captivating way to see the Kissemmee/Disney area.

SANS2012 -- Disney Fireworks

The Disney Wishes fireworks show was also visible in the distance from the hotel every night at 10. Unfortunately, the angle of tower building blocked most of the show. I could hear them but just barely see them from the balcony. These ended up being shot through the window at the end of the hallway.

Boom
Boom
